The Swedes are here! That’s right, they do not only have ABBA and IKEA up there in the north, but also whisky distilleries. So today, I will review the core range of Mackmyra, Sweden’s biggest and most famous whisky distillery.
Alright, let’s start with Mackmyra MACK, which is their new entry level expression, I guess?
|Cask Type:||American Oak|
Light and fruity. Stewed pears and fresh peeled lemons, followed by vanilla and nougat. Wood polish. Hints of mint and herb candies.
Smooth, but the youth shows through. Overripe pears and some oak. Ginger, bitter almonds and chocolate pudding.
Medium and a bit spicy. Mint chocolate. Whiffs of oak.
Decent, but way too youthful for my liking.
